News Update Autumn 2015


Have Your Say!


Leeds City Council are asking for comments on their site allocation plan which is currently in draft form. The plan identifies land where new homes, employment and green spaces are to be located.


Visit http://www.leeds.gov.uk/council/Pages/Introduction-to-Local-Development-Framework.aspx to have your say. Or just go to www.leeds.gov.uk and scroll down the home page to the Consultation icon.


The closing date for comments is 16th November.

Picnic on the Village Green


The Parish Council has been asked if we will be holding an event to celebrate The Queen's 90th Birthday next year. Although we would very much like to hold another Fun Day as we did for the Diamond Jubilee, sadly this won't be possible. This took a great deal of time and work and unfortunately we don't have enough resources (i.e. Parish Councillors) to put on such a big event.


However, we would like to mark the occasion and various ideas have been suggested. One was to have a “Grand Picnic Party” on a specified day, encouraging people to take picnics to the Village Green, possibly with a brass band to entertain them.We would welcome other ideas and, as with the Jubilee, we would be able to offer grants for community street parties or other celebratory events. So time to put your thinking caps on.


Boundary Stone Update 1


The Parish Council will be improving the area by the Boundary Stone on Alwoodley Lane which currently has a couple of flower beds surrounded by untidy grass. We intend to remove the flower bed in front of the stone, prepare the ground for re-turfing, plant bulbs to naturalise in the grass and then lay new turf. The flower bed alongside the wall will also be tidied. Some of the plants will be retained and a mixture of bulbs to provide a longer show of colour through spring into summer will be planted. We hope the improvements will deter cars from being parked there.


Boundary Stone Update 2


We would just like to mention that the Highways Department have confirmed that the latest boundary stone, on Harrogate Road, meets all their requirements as to size, location and road safety.

New Councillor


We are delighted to welcome Ramesh Khetani as a new member of the Parish Council. Many of you will know him from his time at the late lamented King Lane Post Office and we are sure he will be a hard working member of the PC.


More Needed!


Ramesh brings the number of Parish Councillors to 9 but there are still vacancies for 2 more public spirited people to bring the PC up to full strength, so why not join us?

Other News

































Our long-awaited new Village Green sign has finally been installed and we hope you like it as much as we do!  The Village Green is the only piece of public green space within the Parish and the sign symbolises its value to our community, both now and long into the future.


The first six mini flower beds have now been planted up and are looking very colourful. We have already received  positive comments and are now considering other suitable sites.

Urgent Warning - Urgent Warning

from the Leeds District Neighbourhood Watch Liaison Team


The BT scam would appear to be doing the rounds again, A NW coordinator in the Scarcroft area was on the receiving end of a call. They passed on the below information.


I received a telephone call from a person with an Asian accent on Saturday evening. She said that she was from BT and that there was a fault with my router. She said that every time I switched it on, it infected the computer. I had difficulty understanding what she was saying and she eventually gave up in mid-sentence.


I spoke with someone from West Yorkshire Police today and they say that it has been used as a means of getting access to a person's computer and into their bank details and they are aware of people being defrauded of hundreds of pounds.


The local coordinator was obviously aware of the scam and the difficulty in understanding the callers put her on the alert, but if you are a BT customer you could well be taken in - especially at this busy time of year."
